“One of the main draws of the Smith Bachelor of Commerce program for me was the international exchange.

Spending a semester in Thailand exceeded all my expectations. By immersing myself in a culture, I was able to expand my personal and professional networks, work with cross-cultural teams, and make lifelong memories. I am so thankful to have had this opportunity.”
